Thank you for pointing it out. Indeed, the pop-up box does show
"C+boost". Still, the "Search term" box shows "C++ Boost". You seem to
outright dismiss the information provided by the "Search term" box and
to present the pop-up box info as the sole truth. I am far from
convinced it's justified. In fact, the "q=C%2B%2B" seems to indicate
that it indeed searched for C++.

You seem to trust that filtering component working flawlessly. I am
again not that sure. :-)
More so, the numbers shown in that pop-up box are questionable... not to
say outright bogus. :-)
